The 14th Annual San Felipe Folk Music Festival
Saturday - March 24, 2018, from 1pm till 4pm
Location: La Palapa in El Dorado Ranch
Performances will feature acoustic folk, cowboy, blues and original music by some of the Southwest’s finest acoustic performers.
--> Mike Falk is a multi-instrumentalist with a penchant for regional folk from around the world, especially the old-time music of the Appalachians, bluegrass from Kentucky, dance music of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and the Celtic regions of Spain, oddly-metered music from the Balkans, and swing music from Texas. He plays mainly mandolin, clawhammer-style banjo, bouzouki, and tenor banjo. His day job involves building imaginary things in the air. (He’s a pure mathematician.)
--> Jesse Anderson is an accomplished guitarist and banjo player and a lively performer of old-time tunes. He goes to work several times a week as a strolling cowboy singer on the Vintage Grand Canyon Railway, entertaining world travelers en-route to the Big Ditch. He raises blonde children and brown egg layers in the mountain town of Flagstaff, Arizona.
--> Big Bill Vernieu is an encyclopedic knowledge of bluegrass and western songs and is a master of the mandolin.
--> Steve Lord - Few performers have the staying power of San Felipe’s own Steve Lord. He learned the ropes while running a coffeehouse during the folk scare of the 60’s. He has been an advocate for and promoter of folk music for at least six decades. Equally at home with a five-string banjo, a twelve string guitar or an autoharp he has literally sailed the seven seas to collect his songs and he will bring forth a belly laugh with one verse and a tear with the next.
--> Canyon Willis-Green is a young guitarist of great talent and focus who delivers tasty country blues, crisp bluegrass rags and classic tunes from the Grateful Dead. It’s reassuring to hear that old magic of a boy and his guitar.
